Question about Lexmark X4650 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No wireless printer port for lexmark x4650 wireless x4650 does connect just fine to my router. But when I ran the install cd, it said that the connection failed. After some research, it seems that the correct port is not in the printer properties, but I cannot seem to add it. The only port that works is the USB port, but I wanted it for the wireless ability. It will print wireless if I connect it to the "print server" wireless connection, but that is not the same as my actual network.

    thanks, i am at not home, and cannot verify, but that seems pretty good. A question I add it from the Exceptions tab? And then once I click on the add port button, it asks for "name" and "port number". I assume I add the ip address there?

    thanks! on xp professional by the way.

Your firewall for the wireless is blocking the port. Go into your firewall settings and add the port from the printer to bypass the router. What operating system do you have? It should be in Control Panel under Security Center.
Let me know.

    Add the name of the printer when you set it up and add (I think its) port 427.

    For me, I named mine ( HPOffice01 ). I setup an ip port to print on ip that I setup for the printer. In firewall Exceptions, check ' File and printer sharing'. Then go to printers, right click your printer, select 'Sharing' to share the printer on the network. Now, beside sharing is ports. Add an ip port you want set for the printer. ( some printer have an ip like Give it a try. After you get home from work, email me.

I have a new router connected to my laptop and i lost the instalation CD. How can i connect my lexmark X4650 to my new router?

Why would you ever, ever use the CD a thing came with to install drivers? The ones online at the maker's sites (or service site) are, bar few, much better choices.
Outside of that, if they're both 802.11g, they'll both have sync buttons so you can just hit the one on the router, then the printer, push printer buttons in an affirming way, then go to your laptop and print the queue (or backlog, or whatever.)

DSL line problems required us to reset the wireless router in the process the Lemarck x4650 no longer connects to laptop. Fix?

get t the wireless card of the printer ..and reconnect it in the actual conditions of the router ..just open the card ..and scan for network ..when you find it ..connect ...and insert the network password if it has the security activated..Practically connect the printer again like you connect a wireless laptop ..
If the connection is made to one of the ports of the router cable ..than open the lan card in the printer and insert the values corespondent to the position in the port .. or put it to automatically (obtain an IP address automatically ) if the router supports it ..and it is not necesarry to insert the addresses a manually ....if it is ..get to the other option ..use the following Ip address ..and insert the values like in the computer that connects in the near by port ..only at the IP address insert the last digit with one unit more than the port near it thi s..
if the printer is in the 4th port ..and the computer near it in 3rd has the Ip address 192.168.1 4..the printer will became .. (they are always with one digit more..cause the router is 1..the rest since the port one are from 2...3..and so on ..

Can't get my wireless printer to receive a signal from the router

I would take that printer back. I do not know which store you bought it from, but from my troubleshooting experience rule out that it is in fact not the printer. Another one taken through the same paces will tell you that. Then you know that it is something outside that printer or some question or parameter not answered right during the installation process. Good luck and God bless.

Failure to install X4650

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
